The Alfa 4C presented in Geneva International motor show, smaller than the 8C it essentially succeeds, doesn’t shed the excitement factor, just concentrates it into a more compact shape.
In fact, at less than eight feet long, it doesn’t get much more concentrated than this. Or much lighter: carbon fiber and aluminum construction helps keep the weight down to below 850 kilograms (1873 lbs). The 1750cc, direct-injection turbo four from the Giulietta QV mounted amidship drives just over 200 horsepower via Alfa’s TCT dual-clutch transmission to the rear wheels for a 0-60 time in the fours; and speed being relative to size.
Alfa is currently evaluating production possibilities for the 4C, which could finally lead the company’s long-awaited return to the North American market. That, and the simply awesome matte red paint scheme in which the show car was unveiled here in Geneva.
